If you have goats and can helpme with this issue, please reply in the comments!
We have goats.
The majority of them are fairly even tempered adorable animals.
And then there's Gabby...
Gabrielle was the first goat to give birth here at Frippery Farm (our informal name for this little place).
Gabby never, but NEVER shuts up. And she is LOUD!!!
The rest of the goats will be peacefully sleeping at 5 am or 5:30 am and Gabby will decide it is time for them--and us---and the whole neighborhood--to wake up RIGHT FREAKIN' NOW!!!
I swear she talks in her sleep, even.
She wakes up the rooster and chickens. She wakes up the dogs next door. She wakes up the other goats.
She wakes up us and the neighbors, too. Most don't complain, although Frank (our neighbor with the dogs) has offered us several great goat BBQ recipes.(A hint maybe?)
There is absolutely nothing physically wrong with her. Had her checked by the vet. Perfectly healthy he said.
Gabby is just, well, GABBY!
Tried giving her a little extra grain and hay...nope...she bellowed with her mouth full...although that muffled it a touch. Tried separating her from the other goats, she bellowed louder (something I thought was not possible).
I brush her, I milk her, I talk to her in soothing tones.
Nothing has worked.
Is she simply a whiner and complainer of the goat world?
A diva that thinks she is not getting her due?
I don't know.
I like my goats...but Gabby is making it very hard to like her.
Any suggestions? Has anyone else out there had a goat that simply won't shut the heck up?
